Don't Let The Rodents In Tucson Damage Your Home

July 20, 2022

Rodents are one of the most destructive pests to infiltrate your Tucson home. If you want to avoid the damages and dangers that all rodents can cause, you should reach out to Tucson pest control for more advice and removal assistance at the first sign of a rodent problem.

What Animals Are Considered Rodents?

Many people know that rats and mice are rodents, but the blanket species of ‘rodent’ covers some other common Tucson pests. We list all of the types of rodents that you may need to be concerned about seeing in your home below.

  • Rats (roof rats or Norway rats are common in Tucson)
  • Mice (including the house mouse and the deer mouse)
  • Squirrels
  • Voles
  • Chipmunks
  • Woodchucks
  • Muskrats 

If you need help identifying your rodent invaders or assistance in removing any of these different types of rodents, you should contact us at Pest Friends for service as soon as possible.

Why Are Rodents In My Garden?

You may not realize it at first, but your garden is a prime location for rodents to hide out and have easy access to the essentials of food, water, and shelter. This is especially true if your garden has plenty of trash and uncovered pet food for scavenging, moisture and drainage issues that lead to excess water pools, and long grasses or yard debris that make for prime hiding spots.

Addressing and removing or reducing access to these factors can help get rid of rodents in your garden and deter them from eventually invading your home in search of even more secure food, water, and shelter.

How Can I Tell If Rodents Are Damaging My Home?

Once a rodent infestation is widespread in your home, several noticeable signs of damage can start to appear. Keep a look out for these signs, as they are often the first indicators that you have a serious rodent problem underway:

  • Gnaw marks in food packaging, on walls, on furniture, in pantries, and along baseboards
  • Scratch marks on walls, flooring, and furniture
  • Droppings or grease marks left behind throughout your home and especially in areas with food or trash storage
  • Active burrows or tracks in your yard and significant destruction or scavenging evidence around outdoor trash areas

If you see any of these signs of damage, you should contact us at Pest Friends right away. Not only can we help identify the kinds of rodents that may be infesting your yard, but we can help you treat the problem quickly and efficiently, resulting in total pest protection.
